COLIN MCNAUGHTON, an International Reading Association Children's Choices favorite, has created more than sixty books for children. "Of all the books and characters I've created, the Captain Abdul stories are my favorites - the most fun to write and draw," he says. "One day I was out and about on the streets of London when I heard a mother refer to her son as ‘my little treasure,' and I thought, ‘Hmmm.' So the title of this book came first and the story, about fathers and sons, just flowed out. I enjoyed every minute of it - every scratchy hatchy pen-and-ink mark, every splash of watercolor, every ‘AVAST!,' every ‘OOOH-ARRGH!,' every last ‘HA-HAR!' I hope it shows." Colin McNaughton lives in London with his wife.
